I've had long hair as long as I can remember. And even when I did cut my hair short, I always knew I'd grow it out again.
With all my health stuff, maintaining my hair has been difficult. I simply hurt too much to care for my hair the way I want to sooo.... I cut it! Only with the knowledge that *this time * it would probably stay short.
At first I was really sad. It felt like I was giving in or accepting defeat, when I realised this isn't a surrender to my symptoms, this is me fighting back!
Today I CHOOSE joy. ❤️
